    HUFFPO ^ | Nov. 25, 2015 | Rev. Al Sharpton
    For the last 24 years of National Action Network's (NAN) existence, I have utilized Thanksgiving Day to serve and eat with the homeless and seniors at our headquarters in New York City. I chose to turn a day that I have serious problems with, given the history of what was done to Native Americans, into a day of family and community to show that we can extend ourselves beyond our own comfort. We will continue that tradition this Thursday, but I have also particularly reached out to Muslims to join us in our Harlem headquarters and chapters around the country...

    “I’m paid to dispense a little poison every day to people,” said a well-trained pharmacist recently. We began our conversation at a Treasure Coast GOP forum for candidates running for office. There was nothing new being said so I welcomed this conversation with a real American who was unafraid to tell the truth about a tragedy he sees every day. “Forty four out of every 100 middle aged white Americans are taking anti-depressants, more than 1 in 3,” he went on. When you multiply out his figure of 495 prescriptions for pills he fills every day at one corner, corporate...

    HUFFPO ^ | Nov. 16, 2015 | David Bier
    After the attacks on Paris, many politicians--including (so far) the governors of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Michigan, and Texas--have called for stopping refugee flows to the United States from the Middle East, claiming that the refugee process poses a major threat to America's security. Here are six reasons why ending U.S. refugee resettlement is a senseless and reactionary approach: 1. The Paris attackers were not refugees: Assuming that the user of a fake Syrian passport found near the body of an attacker belonged to the attacker, which isn't clear, he exploited the flow of people into Europe, but he was not...

    A woman in Massachusetts is causing a stir on the Internet after a photograph of her wearing a colander on her head in her driver’s license photo have been circulating the web — all in the name of freedom of religion. On Friday, Nov. 13, Lindsay Miller of Lowell, Mass., told the Associated Press that she “absolutely loves the history and the story” of Pastafarians, a religious group that is otherwise known as the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. She opted to wear a strainer on her head as part of her religious observance, she added, much the same...

    Any time there is an attack on civilians in the post-9/11 West, demagogues immediately blame it on Muslims. They frequently lack evidence, but depend on the blunt force of anti-Muslim bigotry to bolster their accusations. Actual evidence, on the other hand, shows that less than two percent of terrorist attacks from 2009 to 2013 in the E.U. were religiously motivated. In 2013, just one percent of the 152 terrorist attacks were religious in nature; in 2012, less than three percent of the 219 terrorist attacks were inspired by religion. The vast majority of terrorist attacks in these years were motivated...

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Tuesday ordered the nation’s two largest fantasy-sports-betting Web sites to cut off gamblers from the Empire State — saying the online operations are illegal and designed to scam sports fans out of billions of dollars. In cease-and-desist letters to FanDuel and DraftKings, Schneiderman’s office said the booming businesses were breaking New York’s law that prohibits gambling on games of chance. The letters say the companies’ customers “are clearly placing bets on events outside of their control or influence, specifically on the real-game performance of professional athletes.”

    Antidote to Liberalism Ponder this: Why are conservatives such as William Bennett, George Will, Bill Kristol, et al so graciously accepted by the prevailing liberal establishment? Why is there almost a commraderie between today’s prominent conservatives and liberals? It is because today’s conservatives do not challenge the moral premise of statism. Most of today’s conservative leaders are brilliant intellects, but they accept statism’s violation of individual rights and its conveyance of special privileges to a myriad of factions. Thus, they pose no moral threat to liberalism and are not feared by those who are tyrannizing our lives with omnipresent government....

    Much of the left has always hated men like Ben Carson, but now that he has the lead in the Real Clear Politics polling average (as of this writing) for the republican presidential nomination, their desire to tear him down has intensified. With a recent column in Time magazine entitled Ben Carson is Terrible for Black Americans, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar decided to weigh in. Sounding like a bad Elaine Benes date, Abdul-Jabbar begins his piece by asking and answering his own question—twice. He concludes that a Carson presidency would “be an unmitigated disaster.” I suppose that with record numbers...

  • Is your local Target closing?

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Target (TGT) plans to close 13 stores nationwide, including one in New Ulm and two others in Milwaukee and Superior, Wisconsin. The Minneapolis-based retailer says a decision to close a store usually follows several years of decreasing profitability. The retail giant plans to close the stores on Jan. 30, 2016. Target was hurt by a massive credit-card breach before Christmas 2013 that sent shoppers temporarily fleeing. The company also botched a major expansion into Canada and pulled the plug on that earlier this year. Layoffs in 2015 included 2,500 jobs, or about one-fifth of the workers in the...

    Will the massive engineered migration from third world countries, the demographic suicide of the west, the overall degradation of western society, and the mental disorder of liberalism eventually doom western civilization? As the engineered tide of illegal immigrants is flooding Europe and North America, small countries are overwhelmed and have made inefficient and weak attempts to stem this deluge and to close the Schengen zone borders. Griff Witte wrote on November 3, 2015 on the front page of the Washington Post, “As migrant tide reaches a new high, pressure builds for Europe to seal its borders.” As they are “tempted...

McCarthy is so determined to make this happen, she's taking the lead role at an ongoing United Nations summit to expand the current global treaty covering ozone-depleting substances.

    What matters, rather, is the strength of the longing. Modern liberalism is best understood as a movement of would-be believers in search of true faith. For much of the 20th century it was faith in History, especially in its Marxist interpretation. Now it’s faith in the environment. Each is a comprehensive belief system, an instruction sheet on how to live, eat and reproduce, a story of how man fell and how he might be redeemed, a tale of impending crisis that’s also a moral crucible. In short, a religion without God. I sometimes wonder whether the journalists now writing about...

The first of these lives is snuffed out by the cold, mean hands of abortionists as they burn a baby’s brain with a saline bath. Another young life ends when her skull is crushed with forceps, yet another when a needle is rammed through his tiny brain. These little human beings did nothing to cause this horror. “He’s still alive,” one abortionist’s assistant said when she noticed a little baby boy had survived the...

By the time it was over, 10 people were dead, including the shooter, and nine others were horribly injured. According to reports from at least one of the survivors, the shooter ordered students to stand up and state if they were Christians. "And they would stand up, and he (the shooter) said, 'Good. Because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second," the victim's father told a media outlet....

The death penalty came up as Scalia described his judicial view that the Constitution is an "enduring" document that shouldn't be open to broad interpretation while sharing frustration that his colleagues too readily find flexibility in it.

The battle lines are drawn, not so much between conservative vs. liberal, as many presume, but, rather, between biblical vs. unbiblical, truth vs. deception. In its most distilled form the culture war signifies the worldly manifestation of an otherworldy spiritual battle between good and evil.

However, the newest released figures show that there is a dip in most church growth indicators -- total membership, ASA, congregations, baptisms, communicants, faith formation pupils, confirmations, and receptions from other Christian denominations. There is a slight uptick in marriages and an increase in funerals. For the first time in 75 years, The Episcopal Church's total membership dipped below the two million member mark.

Another occasion for left-wingers to roll their eyes and complain about how even after this shooting, those dastardly right-wingers still won't support "common sense gun laws." The reason we don't, of course, is because the left-wingers are still making the same old, nonsensical, discredited...

    Complete Headline: Breaking the Kennedy code of silence: Patrick goes on national TV to expose his family's secrets as he launches book describing how 'disabling alcoholism' killed his father Ted, his mom and his sister Patrick Kennedy has broken the political dynasty's 'code of silence' by describing how he turned to drink at 13 to deal with the multitude of his family's problems. The former Congressman told CBS' 60 Minutes how his alcoholic mother Joan would walk around in a bathrobe 'inebriated' during the day while his father, Senator Ted Kennedy, would self-medicate by drinking. The 48-year-old politician said the...

    Linda Stasi, a columnist for the New York Daily News, has a unique proposal to share with her readers. She thinks the NRA should be listed on the State Department terrorist list because they are responsible for thousands of gun deaths over the last few years. Sheesh.One terrorist group is responsible for more civilian deaths since December 2012 (the Sandy Hook massacre) than Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas and the Taliban. Yet it is the only nearly-state sponsored terrorist group that is not listed by the U.S. State Department as such. It is the National Rifle Association and for...

    The story of Jewel Shuping demonstrates that there simply are no limits to the mental disorder of liberalism. Jewel is the woman suffering from a somewhat new affliction dubbed body identity integrity disorder (BIID) who chose to blind herself because she always felt she was meant to be blind.The most amazing thing about this story is that after years of dreaming of being blind and blind-simming she found a sympathetic psychologist to help her fulfill her dream. Seriously - he poured drain cleaner in her eyes in order to blind her. It worked. Why he isnt in jail? I guess...

    The pope of the poor arrived for his first-ever visit to the worlds wealthiest superpower Tuesday denying he is a leftist and riding in a frugal little family car, windows rolled down. [] The Argentine, known as the slum pope for ministering to the downtrodden in his native Buenos Aires, is expected to urge America to take better care of the environment and the poor and return to its founding ideals of religious liberty and open arms toward immigrants.During the flight, Francis defended himself against conservative criticism that his condemnation of trickle-down economics makes him a communist. I am certain...

    For adherent Catholics the announcement of the pending visit of Pope Francis promised much. Some felt that perhaps the Vatican had finally realized that the American Catholic Church represents the very future survival of the Catholic Church worldwide. There was great hope among some that Francis would come to America and say, Thank you America; thank you for always being there in times of need for so many around the world, even those who hate you as the Bible directs; thank you American Catholics for contributing so much to support foreign missions; thank you for being the pro-life beacon in...

    When it comes to considering the arguments of newly resurgent Christian progressives, we hold these truths to be self-evident: Jesus was not a socialist, the Bible is not an economics textbook, and while scripture commands believers to help the poor, it also commands the poor to help themselves. As Pope Francis gains rock-star status on the economic left, Christians would do well to remember not just scripture, but the economic reality of recent world experience. This morning, the pope addressed Congress with relative restraint. Rather than decrying the perceived excesses of global capitalism calling it, as he once...

    Americans have an almost universal revulsion towards child molesters. Even among prisoners, some of whom are guilty of the heinous crime of murder, pedophiles are viewed with such disgust that their very lives are forfeit. They are considered the lowest of the low. That innate revulsion also arises among our military when mere children are raped. Sexually abusing and torturing kids is something that sickens and enrages even the most battle-hardened American soldiers. It is something our military has always found absolutely intolerable. That is why the revelation that U.S. soldiers have been ordered to stand down and do nothing...

    Democrats literally booed God at their 2012 national convention. When the left showers praise on him it has NOTHING to do with his purpose of being a man of God and everything to do with the hypocrisy of their rhetoric on the separation of church and state.

    Speaking of the restoration of the centuries-old Bourbon monarchy following the massively convulsive interlude of 22 years between French Revolution and Napoleons defeat at Waterloo in 1814 Talleyrand quipped, They [the Bourbons] have learned nothing and forgotten nothing. On a smaller scale, the same judgment applies to the lessons learned (or studiously ignored) in a lengthy report released last week into the underlying issues behind the riots and looting that erupted in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson (pop. 21,200) following the shooting death of a young black man by a white police officer on Aug. 9, 2014....

    He wasn’t the Messiah they were expecting. There are many (many, many) competing analyses of the life of Jesus, of what happened and what it meant, and some of those are, inevitably, political. Many scholars hold that the Jews rejected Jesus’ claim of being the Messiah because they were expecting a political and military leader, a great liberator who would drive out the hated Roman occupation and restore Jewish sovereignty over Israel. Pontius Pilate and Herod both seem to have been perplexed by Jesus’ understanding of His own kingship — “My kingdom is not of this world” — because they...
  • L.A. lawmakers to declare 'state of emergency,' commit more than $100 million to fight homelessness

    Members of the Los Angeles City Council are expected Tuesday to declare a state of emergency on homelessness and commit $100 million toward housing and other services for homeless people.. The announcement coincides with Mayor Eric Garcettis proposal, issued late Monday, that the city devote nearly $13 million toward short-term housing initiatives paid for with projected excess funds. If approved, the pair of initiatives could significantly increase the resources dedicated to tackling homelessness in a city where the majority of the 26,000 homeless people live on the streets.
